Is this really a Frozen Grey Matte M3?

http://www.newportcoastauto.com/inve...8#request-info

Maybe its the lighting, but i cant tell if its the frozen grey matte, or grey matte.

The info says its Frozen Matte Grey, but who listens to stealerships?

I believe Frozen Grey for the US-Spec M3 was released in 2011.

i remember seeing that car for sale at that dealership awhile back too... and like ^he said, i dont think the frozen grey m3 was even available as an MY08, as it was announced last year (or maybe early this year).

"We here at Newport Coast Auto found a way to make this 2008 mirror BMW's 2011" so sounds like they repainted the car. Didn't come painted like that from the factory.

That "frozen grey" has no sheen to it like the OEM does....it looks flat and not appealing. Lazy bastards even painted the triangle portion of the mirrors.
